Bull Sale

I know I don't have one single picture and I meant to take my camera with me.  My son and I went to the Bull sale in Bedford, In. at the Springville Feeder Auction.   Boy what a good time  Lots and lots of Bulls and lots of guys.   You know the new thing on the radio it is OK to look  I had a lot to look at.  They have a restaurant that served good beef burgers from Heartland Beef  good Beef  produced by Cattlemen in Indiana my hubby is one of those guys trying to promote beef.
To get to the Bull part we did buy a Bull nice fellow We got him home and he starts his call to see if he gets any takers  Showing his stuff.  He will be confined for a few weeks and when the girls go out to pasture he will go with them.
If you have never been to a cattle sale  there  are bleachers and a ring for the animal to dance around in to show his stuff. There are ring masters that keep the animal moving.  Reminds me when the wrestle on TV
(And No I don't watch!!)  except the ring is down below  most sale barns are set up like that.
Sorry no pictures but I need to carry it with me like the rest of you.  Have a great weekend  I have a fiber show in Greencastle In


  1. You know, I have never been to a cattle auction, and we have one right down the road not five miles from our house! Tall Guy goes to buy and sell, but I have never tagged along. Wonder if someone would have a hissy if I took my camera? You know how these men feel about us and our cameras sometimes. On the down side, it might spook the animal if our flash went off. We would probably have to turn that off. Hmmmmmm now you have me thinking! ;-) Good post!

  2. Well I will be very anxious to see a picture of your new addition (and that's no bull). :)
